About Me

Am an Illinois state certified makeup artist (MAC Cosmetics), doing everything from fashion/editorial, commercial/headshots, media, including HD makeup and airbrushing, theatrical, special events and bridal.

I have a background in opera performance which helps with the theatrical aspects of makeup and styling. A minor background in the medical field helps me with understanding clinical makeup application. Though I dabble in my share of performing music, a small bit of modeling, and some acting, I do enjoy being behind the scenes more, and being involved in the creative process in that way.

My career was kicked off through good fortune and through surrounding myself with good souls! I've had the honor to collaborate with a couple wonderful photographers, stylists, hair stylists, models, and other makeup artists, in and around the metro Chicago area. Soon, I'll also be posting more and more of my work for media and television, including special effects.

Would love to collaborate with models, photographers, stylists, artists who like my work enough to want to include me in creating new and great things!
* I am willing to travel, but generally when most expenses are paid.

** I am no longer accepting TFP work as of December, 2009, though my prices are reasonable and negotiable. Photo shoots: I ask for a $80 kit fee for one look, $120 for two, or $200 for a day rate.

*** I will however, contact you if I am interested in portfolio building.
